|Getting my Craft on|
We made a move back to Tanabe City as the other were waiting for us to head out and grab a feed, I am sure I will get this wrong but we had Shabu Shabu, its a Japanese hotpot place where there is a hotplate with a pot on the table, one side has a standard hot water and miso taste and the other was Teryaki flavor. Now maybe this is just the western coming out in me but I thought when you went to a place for a feed they prepared the food, they cooked the food and you ate the food. I want in on one of these places, there is no work involved. We started by preparing our sauces, I am a sesame man so I went for the sesame sauce meaning I had to grind down the seeds with a pumice and go from there. Then a dozen or so trays of very fine sliced meat appeared at the end of the table. Shabu Shabu literally means to dip repeatedly. So the point is that you dont put it in for too long, just enough to color the meat and then add to your chosen sauce and go for your life. Now I am hamming up the whole cook it yourself thing it is a truly great way to eat with friends, every one is involved in some way and there was no need for mobile phones or awkward conversation every one was just so involved with each other it worked a treat. I should mention it was delicious too.
It was again getting late so we made a move back to drop me off at the hotel. Off for some stickbaiting in the morning.
